METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 20, 2012 GAME:Shickhaus Franks
February 13, 2013
This was much worse than the Phillies 26-7 blowout in June 1985, at least they were a pretty good team at the time. This game was a makeup game from a Tuesday rainout with maybe a few thousand diehards in the stands. They moved the radio broadcast to WBBR-1130 because the N.Y. Giants game was on WFAN. Poor Jeremy Hefner couldn't even get one out; they used everyone in the bullpen except for Pete Falcone, Dennis Cook and Oliver Perez LOL. I'll bet you dollars to donuts that this will NOT be a Mets Classic; in fact they'll probably burn any evidence of this fiasco (even Mike Baxter's token HR) but when the New York Mets go back into the postseason in 2013 (Just look at Oakland and Baltimore this year) Mets fans will look back on Sept 20, 2012 as the low point in the Sandy Alderson era!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
